I went to the nurse yesterday afternoon and she checked me out and got one of the doctors to come in and check me out too (it was a doctor I hadn't met before). Anyway the verdict is I definitely haven't broken my nose but there is a slim chance I cracked the bone and even if I didn't they don't do anything for that so there is no point taking x-rays. I can expect to be in pain for at least a week tho, joy.

Me in Madrid on Sunday

This is me in Madrid on Sunday. It was late morning and was taken in a square in Opera. The Opera house is opposite where I was sitting. I don't think you can see my injuries on here tho.

I met Mickey Mouse!

Kat lives in a flat with two housemates. One of them, Alfredo, is originally from Peru and has lived in Madrid for two years. He came out with us Friday afternoon and took us on something of a walking tour of the city - we saw so much and he willingly provided wheelchair pushing services which I was so grateful for! We ended up in the Retiro which is the main park in Madrid and randomly there was a guy wandering around just inside the gates dressed as Mickey Mouse. I just had to have my picture taken with him!

Alfredo is a really great guy but he did scare the life out of me when I first met him! I was sat in the square and Kat had wandered off a little to see if she could spot him when someone walks up next to me, kisses me on the cheek and goes "Welcome to Madrid Emma" And Also I made a fool of myself when we stopped for lunch (in a latin american restaurant) and in Spanish he asked me if I had brothers and sisters. I thought he'd asked how old I was so I just went "24" and then immediately realised my mistake!

I temporarily got my WiFi back so I'm catching up on journals... wow, I'm soooo sorry about your accident! That sounds incredibly painful and horrid, but I'm glad it wasn't worse and that you still managed to enjoy your holiday. The pictures are great, it looks like you had some gorgeous weather.

Re. your comment on my last entry - very good point. I think I've been trying to be more feminine because people are pushing it on me, trying to get me to dress and act differently, and I did it just to shut them up. I've just got to the point though where I can't be doing with it anymore. I can't be what I'm not. I'm not girly, nobody can make me girly, and cutting my hair short again feels like getting back to who I really am. Who wants to be a girl when you can be a woman? :)
